A classic survival horror game
Resident Evil 3 is a remake of the Capcom classic, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. You can experience the action by choosing the terrifying single-player campaign or the thrilling one-versus-four online multiplayer. The game follows Jill Valentine as she escapes the zombies of Raccoon City. You must be cautious of your choices, as each decision will could make or break your survival.
You would think that, as the third installment of the Resident Evil series, the story begins after the events of its predecessor. For this survival horror game, however, the storyline is set twenty-four hours before the events of Resident Evil 2. It’s not necessary to previous installments, but Capcom offered a lot of easter eggs for its fans. It will definitely make for a richer gaming experience.
You must take on the role of Jill Valentine as she traverses through Raccoon City, where most of its population has morphed into zombies. But the central theme of the game is not escaping from zombies but fighting against a creature named Nemesis.
This bio-organic weapon is programmed to kill surviving S.T.A.R.S members—which Jill happens to be. The monster will prove difficult to beat, as he is more intelligent and more violent than other zombies. This behemoth can stomp and run around the city even while carrying a massive missile launcher. Nemesis is sure to be your worst nightmare.
Get your tissues ready because this RE3 remake is so awe-inspiringly beautiful that fans might tear up from the nostalgia. It has come a long way from the block-type graphics of the late 90s. The prerendered backgrounds are now littered with so much detail that it’s overwhelming—crashed cars, rubbish, and rubble dominate the destroyed streets. You will see the sheen of broken glass and debris housed in the suburban area. The art has drastically improved in being gorgeous.
Fans will also be impressed by Jill’s own improvement. The female lead has been fitted with a more post-apocalyptic friendly attire: layered tank top, cargo pants, and boots. It’s a far cry from her old tube top and mini-skirt from the first release of RE3. It’s clear that Capcom is taking a serious approach to the action this time around.
Those that are playing Resident Evil for the first time will appreciate the FMV and other cut scenes. It is obvious that the same dedication was put in delivering a great story on top of an already awesome game.
On gameplay alone, the remake of this classic survival game is a home run for both loyal fans of the franchise and casual gamers. The storyline will be a bit overwhelming for inexperienced players, but the beautiful graphics and smooth flow of cutscenes deliver an awesome storyline that is worth experiencing. Those that are looking to play on the edge of their seats, Resident Evil 3 is for you.
